Bladder Cancer Clinical Trial

Evaluation for NCI Surgery Branch Clinical Research Protocols

Summary

Background:

The National Cancer Institute Surgery Branch (NCI-SB) has developed experimental therapies that involve taking white blood cells from patients' tumor or from their blood, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, and then giving the cells back to the patient.

Objective:

Objectives:

Permit evaluation of patients referred to the NCI-SB in order to identify individuals who will be suitable candidates for NCI-SB clinical research protocols.

To assess frequency of HLA type, gene specific mutations or expression of neo antigens in malignant tumors across the population of cancer patients undergoing screening for NCI-SB protocols.

Collect results of screening tests for use on subsequent research protocol as baseline (e.g., pretreatment) values.

Eligibility:

Age >= 18 years.

Patient suspected of having, or with biopsy proven, malignant disease.

Patient is able to understand and willing to sign a written informed consent document.
